“Non-stop entertainment, punctuated as often by his dazzling vocal prowess as it is by his comic genius” - NEW YORK POST.

“He manages to somehow be both cabaret’s most accomplished balladeer, and it’s wildest, most uninhibited musical clown!” - VARIETY.

“Mac” has been a popular member of the New York Piano Bar & Cabaret communities for over 35 years, whether at the piano or standing center stage. 

His piano bar entertaining earned him a Bistro Award and his stand-up cabaret act won him one of the first MAC Awards for Outstanding Male Singer and an invitation to make his Town Hall debut at the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention.
